indicates that your input matrix is an  Unfactored matrix.

If you want to replace KSPSolve() with your own MatMatSolve, you need use
following blocks
to replace KSPSolve() :
Mat F;
  ierr = KSPGetPC(ksp,&pc);
  ierr = PCFactorSetMatSolverPackage(pc,MATSOLVERPETSC);
  ierr = PCFactorSetUpMatSolverPackage(pc); /* call MatGetFactor() to
create F */
  ierr = PCFactorGetMatrix(pc,&F);
  ierr = KSPSetUp(ksp);
  ierr = MatSolve(F,b,x);
